Meiji's Green Tea & Red Bean Ice-Cream

Daughter and I got lucky last week when we dropped by at Jash Mart along Wilson Street, Greenhills because the "kuya" there informed me that "me new stocks ng meiji ice-cream." Wow!

*** I wasn't able to take a photo of the freezer because its not allowed

And here's what we got ...



Actually, its a choice between the Green Tea and the Hokkaido Milk Ice-Cream. I just told daughter that since I'm the one paying, I get to choose the flavor-- hahaha. Bad mommy!



I love the flavor! This is not the commercialized green tea that tends to be sweet. This one is really green tea-ish! The subtle hint of bitterness was gently coated by the sweet red beans. Blends perfectly well. A canister /pint of Meiji Ice Cream costs P250.00 only. Yum!

I remember Haagen Daz' green tea ice cream tastes bitter but I got addicted to it eventually. This one tastes just right.

Will try the hokkaido milk and dark chocolate this week. Shhhhhh, I'm gonna surprise daughter. ;)

  1. I love ice cream having a little fragrance of coffee in it. I don't know whether you tried it or not but I'm definitely gonna try this green tea ice cream for sure. I think it is worth trying. Thanks for the blog post.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
